Main Gate Access Forms
Requests can only be made by BNL Employees

Access to BNL is controlled by permitting entrance only to those persons who have official business at the Lab and only to those visitors who are properly sponsored by a BNL employee. Requests for individual visits and requests for properly approved events with multiple visitors are handled on separate forms.

  • Individual forms cannot be bookmarked, only this homepage can be bookmarked -
  • Non-U.S. citizens must complete the BNL Guest Registration Form to obtain a Lab guest number. Without a guest number, Non-U.S. citizens will not be able to be processed at the Laboratory's Main Gate.
  • All visitors to the Laboratory age 16 and over must bring a photo ID.

For Windows users, your BNL domain password is the same password used to login to your computer in most cases. Users working on a UNIX platform will not have to log off their existing computer to access these forms, but will have to use their correct BNL domain password. Accepted logins will then be directed to the selected form.
